as you want. so thursday at 11:00 a.m. out of the blue, governor rick snyder of michigan announced a press conference at which he reversed his long held and very publicly held stance against changing union rights in his state. that was at 11:00 a.m. on thursday. an hour and a half later, by 12:30 p.m., the capitol police had shut down the capitol building, sealed off the building so protesters and members of the public could not get in. by 3:15, bills to strip union rights in the state were taken up in both chambers of the state legislature. by 4:00, there was a court order to reopen the state capitol to let the people in again. but before 5:00, before an hour was up, the house had already voted it through. then before 8:00, the senate had voted it through as well, and it was done. it was done, all in one day that didn't even start until an hour before lunch time. all in one day between 11:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., start to finish. and tomorrow, after a very minor amount of house keeping in the legislature, governor rick snyder says he is going to sign it. it's not like this is what t

(laughter) he was going to focus on common ground things people from michigan want and need. more robocoppers on the streets of new detroit. (laughter) getting the tourism board to work a little harder on its new slogan. (laughter) and finally -- (applause). finally michigan was going to fin their statue i have been petitioning for on
with duct tape over their mouths. they blamed not only legislatures, but rick snyder who did a 180 on the issue. >> people are upset. people feel they have been taken advantage of, and the governor ises are ponsable. >> a new did you seems to back up that claim. it shows the michigan republican chairman describing how back in 2007 they decided not to introduce legislation because they didn't think they could get it by governor granholm. well, i promise you, they didn't think they could get it by her. michigan now has receiver strong leaders in congress. they asked with governor snyder and asked him to find a middle path. cider told them he would seriously consider their concerns. i'm joined my mary kay henry, welcome inside "the war room." >> thank you. glad to be here. >> i'm sure you were totally tuned into what the president was saying today, was just having him mention it enough? >> it was great. it was wonderful that he talked about collective bargaining rights and how important it is for workers to be able to lift wages. >> is this payback? i mean -- the unio
] >> well, governor snyder had run his one tough nerd and hence that's buy they're chanting one term nerd. they are very mad at him for flip-flopping. we'll get to that in a second. then, they got really mad at steven crowder a fox contributor and so-called comedian. he got in workers' faces and it didn't work out we will for everybody involved. >> leave it alone. >> get out of my face! get the [bleep] out of my face. i didn't hurt nobody. get out of my face! back off! back the [bleep] off! >> ok! >> he's got a gun! >> i'll kill the [bleep] with a gun! kind of killed plenty of [bleep] with a gun. >> that is crazy. that never should have happened. punching him was wow control totally unacceptable. the guy talking about guns, are you kidding me? somebody arrest that guy. had no, that's madness. steven crowder, what are you doing? you were trying to provoke people and you think it's cute. it's not cute, these guys worried about their wages families, heat care, their pension, and you get in their face and act all smug and then when you provoke them and they hit you and you have that smug smil
the rights of unions. in fact, it was exactly that kind of scene michigan governor rick snyder, a republican, had said he wanted to avoid. in february, governor snyder looked at those other midwestern states with republican governors and workers protesting in the state capital and decided he did not want that thing in michigan, not in his historically very strong union state. governor snyder said, "you look at now that they've had those things happen, do they have a productive environment to solve problems? not necessarily. they're still overcoming the divisiveness, the hard feelings from all of that." at the time reporters wanted to know whether rick snyder would support what is known as a right to work law. the idea of right to work is simple. under a right to work law, employees of a union shop don't have to pay union dues. the employees get the benefit of the union, the higher wages and better health care, all of that, but they do not have to pay for it. why pay money if you can have something for free? for unions, the results of this are close to catastrophic which is why republicans an

's lead, breaking news. republican power grab in michigan. republican governor rick snyder has just signed bills designed to cripple unions. and take away workers' rights even though earlier this year he said such a move would be quote, divisive and inappropriate. snyder signed the bills despite protests from more than 10,000 people who descended on the state capitol in a massive push back against this shameless power play from the republicans. >> right the work is wrong! right the work is wrong! >> he lied to us. he lied to us on numerous occasions. >> veto! veto! >> kill the bill! kill the bill! >> the protests were passionate and grew tense. in this video from the state's aclu, you can see police actually using pepper spray on some of the demonstrators. the issue in michigan is the republican legislature ramming through a so-called right to work bill. with no warning and no hearings. but the fight is bigger than michigan. it's a fight about worker rights and civil rights across the country. this country, the american people, rejected this kind of extremism on election day. but republica

governor rick snyder says it is your fault karla, because you guys put this initiative on the ballot that would have enshrined collective bargaining and if you hadn't done that, they wouldn't have stuck with you right to work legislations so it is all your fault, huh? >> that's an interesting spin on the facts but the fact is that governor snyder really lied to michigan citizens for two and a half years. he said over and over again that right to work wasn't on his agenda. >> bill: yeah. >> then last week, instead of engaging michiganders in any kind of open and honest conversation about this legislation, he rushed the bill through. he made the decision to move it. with legislators, that voters chose not to reflect. -- to re-elect because he wanted to avoid next year's legislators. >> bill: so will there be a democratic majority next year or more democrats in the house and senate? >> there will be more democrats in the house next year. the senate was not changed at all in the 2012 election. but there will be more democ

this hour. over the summer, this past summer, republican governor rick snyder of michigan signed a bill to expand the use of telemedicine in his state. his new law requires that insurance companies have to pay for treatment that you get via contact with a doctor through like a web cam or otherwise online. it's telemedicine. governor snyder was so excited to sign this thing. he said at the time telemedicine offers an incredible opportunity to easily provide health care to michigan's elderly, disabled, and rural communities. i applaud the legislature's initiative to use technology to save lives. the bill got unanimous support. governor snyder signed it with his big happy statement about how awesome this was going to be. he was so excited. yay, telemedicine. telemedicine, you are the future for michigan. you are saving lives. that was this summer. tonight that same governor snyder is poised to sign another law in michigan that would ban the use of telemedicine in that state. specifically for one type of medical care. it's the same type of medical care provided at clinics in michigan that g

outrage on the steps of the statehouse over right to work legislation that governor rick snyder says he will be signing when it reaches his desk likely tomorrow. joining me now nbc's ron mott live in lansing. ron, what is the latest, and how did this come to a head so quickly in michigan? >> reporter: it came together very quickly, andrea. good day to you. it's a cold day out here, but these folks are very fired up. they don't like the way that this legislation was pushed through the statehouse here. they believe that this was a republican strategy to go through a lame-duck session. they know they've got a little more democratic leaning legislature coming here next month, and they figure that this was the most opportune time to push this legislation through. a very small window of time to actually debate the issue, and then as you mention, tomorrow governor snyder is expected to sign this into law, making michigan the 24th right to work state. i spoke with the head of the chamber here in michigan just a few moments ago. he says that this is actually not only good for the worker, but als
. your governor doesn't want to work on that divisive issue. >> republican governor rick snyder promises to sign the bill as soon as it hits his desk which could be within hours. >> jon: actually, between the time that we cut that soundbite and now he already signed it! so (bleep). (laughter) look, you know what, man? so what? so what? so this guy who really looks pleasant enough. (laughter) , maybe it won't be so bad. i mean, the phrase "right to work" is such a positive and uplifting message. what could it possibly do to organizations like unions that also supports workers rights. the law probably strengthens unions. >> it would make it illegal for unions and employers to mandate that employees be part of a union or pay any amount of money to that union. >> jon: or destroy the only leverage unions have to stay afloat, one or the other. so it's really a right-to-work around the union for the corporations. it's one of those things that are actually named for the opposite of the thing they do. like strip bars call themselves gentlemen's clubs. (laughter) or the t.v. network dedicated to m
. yesterday michigan's entire democratic congressional delegation met with governor snyder and asked him to please slow the process down, to stop the bills, or at least send them out for referendum. let the people have a say. president obama had a word with governor snyder at the airport in detroit yesterday. we don't know what they said. but later that day, president obama gave a speech about the economy and the middle class in which he came out strongly against a republican plan to weaken michigan's unions. >> what we shouldn't be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages and working conditions. [ cheering ] >> we shouldn't be doing that. you know, these so-called right-to-work laws, they don't have anything to do with economics. they have everything to do with politics. >> across the state, democrats yesterday reminded governor snyder the bill was too divisive for michigan. he said that right up until last week when he called a hasty press conference to announce he had reversed his position and the legislation suddenly appeared as if by magic. the bills pass
unions from requiring members to pay dus. without hesitation earlier this evening, governor snyder signed the bill into law. there is a simple reason that laws like the one signed earlier are bad policy and bad economics. there's nothing wrong with a tough negotiation between a governor and labor unions or between a ceo and his workers. economic reality has to drive such negotiations. when i was governor, i negotiated hard but change the rules so workers cannot be effectively represented by a union takes away a fundamental right of workers to be represented on matters central to their economic well-being. it is one thing to be tough in negotiations, it is quite another to destroy the capacity of the union to negotiate at all. by slowly bleeding funds away from the union that's exactly what these bills do. this is not about helping the state in tough economic times. it is about destroying the unions. this is what president obama rightly said in detroit yesterday. >> obama: these so-called right-to-work laws they
, look at the news now. michigan snyder what did he say? snyder did not address as they explained in the slate, did not address the right to work in his presentation but told members of the news media afterwards, it is not on my agenda because it is divisive. then what did he do? he put it on his agenda. the minute he had an opportunity he passed the right to work laws. why? he is a liar. he intended to deceive the public so they would vote for him. that's point number two. it's frustrating that the press doesn't understand that. you see, they have to lie otherwise they can't win because their real purpose is to represent the top 2%, the rich and the powerful that fund their campaigns. if they told you the truth, if snyder and romney said i'm out for the rich, will you vote for me, and i'm only for the rich--they wouldn't get your vote. that's why they have to lie on a mass scale. the press who just doesn't get it. the detroit free press after snyder lying to them and pushed forward the right to work law said this. we also indulge many compromises snyder maintain were necessary. i
is what governor rick snyder of michigan wants you to believe it is. >> right to work is about the relationship between the union and workers. and this is about being pro-workers, giving workers the choice. if anything, this should encourage unions to be more responsive to workers. it's about economic development. we will get more and better jobs coming to michigan because we're going to be more competitive. >> okay. so let me get this straight. the republicans in michigan are concerned about this relationship between the union and its workers. they're really -- hey, this is kind of like the health care debate. don't let the government get between you and your doctor. the government's getting between the union and its workers. why? this is not about economic development. unions account for only about 20% of the workforce in michigan. michigan's new right-to-work law isn't going to affect economic development in a positive way whatsoever. and there is a road map to prove that. look at states around the country that are right to work. union membership has declined in this country

, the republican governor of the state, rick snyder, said that he didn't want to do that. but they kim back after this election and they did it anyway. all of a sudden in a bit of a surprise attack. their cover, what they explained about why they felt justified doing it, was that michigan voters in this election had voted against a pro-union rights constitutional amendment. governor rick snyder explained that because the voters said no to an unrelated pro-union rights measure he felt that was a green light for him to strip union rights across the state. the logic is a stretch. but at least you can sort of follow it, right? well, now there's this. in the 2012 election, in this past election michigan voters also got to vote on governor snyder's emergency manager law, which let him come in and take over your town in michigan and just unilaterally get rid of democracy at the local level. voters in michigan voted to repeal that law by a big margin. they voted no on michigan's emergency manager law. so michigan voted no on union rights in the election. so that's why rick snyder says he got rid of union

senate passed last week arks coringed to the associated press. republican governor rick snyder is expected to sign that bill into law. too would make michigan the 24th state to approve a right to work law, which exempts employees in a union workplace from joining or paying dues to that union. meanwhile, pro-union protesters are swarming the michigan capital building in lansing in scenes reminiscent of the battles over union rights in wisconsin and in ohio last year. david corn, we -- the president has sort of -- was in michigan yesterday, and bundled this into a bigger message about the middle class, working americans. is this a good time for republicans to be on the side -- well, against workers rights in the context of this broader conversation we're having? >> you know, we shall see here because they clearly have the votes and snyder says he is going to do this. you see the response. you saw the response in wisconsin. their walker survived the fight. i assume this will be as big, if not bigger, and the uaw, of course, the unions are even stronger in michigan than they are in
